In 2017, we saw record numbers of people from around the world undertake our volunteering programs in Kenya - a fantastic feat! #FeelGoodFriday

Volunteering is so much more than building houses and schools; it is also about being a part of a wider community and having a real connection with those you are helping to bring a change into the world. This connection could even be down to a local game of football! At our charity Moving Mountains Trust, we have a popular football programme, the Black Cats, which helps bring a little more fun and fitness into the loves of children across Kenya.
